Nonya dumplings

Below is a recipe I read - it yields 30 dumplings and is useful as a buying guide.

Makes 30

60 bamboo leaves (soaked overnight)
1 kg glutinous rice (washed and soaked overnight, then drain in a colander)
0.5 tsp five spice powder *
1 tsp coriander powder *
0.5 tsp white pepper *
Pinch of salt *
(*to mix into drained rice)

For the filling, to fry for 15 min:
2 tbs cooking oil
300g shallots, peeled and finely chopped
1kg minced pork
0.5 tsp salt
0.5 tsp white pepper
400g dried shrimp, rinsed and drained
500g winter melon strips, diced to small cubes
0.5 tsp five spice powder
1 tsp coriander powder

Additional filling:
30 chestnuts, boiled and skinned
100g shitake mushrooms, washed, soaked, sliced
400g red bean paste, rolled into 30 small balls

Raffia string
6 to 8 pandan leaves (for boiling in pot)

Amount to fill per dumpling:
1tbs rice + 1tbs filling + 7 mushroom slices + 1 chestnut + 1 ball of red bean paste + 1 tbs filling + 1 tbs rice

Boiling time : 1 hr + 1 hr (shift dumplings position halfway through the 2 hrs)
